Former police general to run for Baguio mayor

Oct 19, 2018 @ 11:20

Former police general Benjamin Magalong is running for Baguio City mayor as an independent candidate.

Magalong led the probe in the botched Mamasapano operation.

The political neophyte said an “influential person” asked him to run.

“I was asked by a very influential person to run. He believed that I can make a difference,” he said.

“Some political leaders are asking me: why didn’t you just run for the city council so you could understand the system? I’ve been in the PNP, in the PDEA, the corporate sector and I can easily adapt to the change in a different environment. If I go through the process, I believe I cannot institute change, it would be too slow,” Magalong explained.
